It wasn't earth-shattering news, but great news for the Washington State Cougars nonetheless. Colin Donovan, a 6-7, 260-pound lineman from Superior, Montana, had been favoring the Cougars for months and visited Pullman, Washington this past weekend. He saw what he needed to see and pulled the trigger on a decision early Wednesday evening.
